The BBR HK Team was fortunate enough to attend the Robert Parker tasting at Wine Futures last Tuesday (amazingly most of our rivals did not bother!). As well as being able to taste alongside the great man, this reaffirmed just how spectacular the 2009 vintage is. All of his “Magic 20” showed superbly in one

A Milestone Birthday with Wine

 Mark As Read    

In early October I turned 70, and this milestone birthday was the subject of three celebrations, one in Singapore, and two at our home in Dorset. They could not have been better and provided great compensation for being born in such a rotten year. The first celebration was organised prebirthday by Australian Michael Hill-Smith, MW in late September...

Serving the lamb: the religious hierarchy of wine serfdom

 Mark As Read    

All these articles about what wines to drink at Thanksgiving are giving me a headache, but I get it. They’re a staple of the wine publishing trade. Heck, for all I know, someone’s gonna write one for Wine Enthusiast! While I defer to no one in my penchant for the best wine and food pairings,

I just found an excellent marketer, in the midst of the myriad of  messages that come my way, including on weekends, while I'm also working at my computer… This is now happening on a daily basis, and it's been happening long enough now to state it as a trend, rather than a flash in the

What Can I Drink at Thanksgiving Besides Wine?

 Mark As Read    

Water? No, I'm joking. While I personally would always choose to drink wine at Thanksgiving, you also have a universe of wonderful alternatives. Let's start with that emblem of fall, the apple. Is there anything more direct and pure than the fresh, sweet-tart flavor of apple cider, the nonalcoholic variety? I don't mean the clear, pallid mass-marke...

How Can I Convince My Mother-in-Law to Let Me Cook?

 Mark As Read    

The idea that you'll take complete control of the meal while you're a guest in her house is probably a nonstarter. You're better off trying baby steps, and offering to help out rather than attempting to take over. The easiest route might be to appoint your husband as your envoy.

How Can I Incorporate Chocolate Into a Thanksgiving Table?

 Mark As Read    

It's a quandary: there is no such thing as a traditional Thanksgiving chocolate dessert. But at a big festive dinner, there will always be a demand for chocolate. You might paint a par-baked pie crust with melted chocolate before filling it. (This is good for pecan pie.) Small brownie squares make a nice adjunct to fruit pies, and The New York Time...

In most of the world, ovens have never been standard in home kitchens. Molly Stevens, a cooking teacher in Vermont and the author of recent tomes on braising and roasting, said that it was possible to cook succulent turkey on the stove top, but not as a whole bird.

How Do I Not Lose My Marbles Stuck in the Car With My Father-in-Law?

For decades there's been a joke in Buddhist circles: A guy comes back from a retreat and tells his friend that he's achieved enlightenment. To which his friend replies, "Wait until you have to spend the weekend with your parents." Thanksgiving, of course, is not only about food. It's about sharing that food with people who grate on you and push but...

So many restaurant chefs are crushing on root vegetables these days, there is no shortage of new ideas. Follow the example set by the North Carolina chef Andrea Reusing and make your sweet potatoes reflect your region: rub with oil, roast at 425 degrees and serve whole, with butter, salt and a local syrup like sorghum, cane or maple.

Will I Kill My Family if I Cook the Stuffing Inside the Turkey?

 Mark As Read    

Highly unlikely. But, both the Agriculture Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend cooking stuffing separately from the turkey. The concern is that cold or frozen stuffing, sometimes sold already stuffed into packaged birds, won't reach a high enough temperature to be eaten safely. But according to Mary Clingman, a 2...

What Are Some Easy Side Dishes That Will Break up the Monotony?

We think of the Thanksgiving menu as something all Americans have in common, but there are so many variables it's impossible to say with certainty what constitutes the average menu. Regional tastes can be an influence, but so can family traditions. For many, the holiday just wouldn't be complete without their particular favorites. Recently I asked ...
